A few years removed from being trapped in the headlines, R. Kelly is now an author, recently penning Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me. Furthermore, the Chicago R&B master's new album Write Me Back is more a tribute to the likes of Barry White and Off the Wall-era Michael Jackson than a means of convincing the ladies to remove their unmentionables. But Kells has earned the rest; in the past two decades, no other singer has come up with more creative ways to describe pleasuring the female anatomy and the lengths to which he will go to do so. In fact, he already has another album, Black Panties, that will be supposedly dropping soon. That's right, I said it.
